Drawing. Dancing by Nicci Haynes
Drawing. Dancing is a short experimental animation that sits between visual and performing art. Employing a body language positioned between choreography and combat, we seem to be watching a mysterious exchange between the drawing and the dancer .
Sound of Colour by Todd MacDonald
A musician and a painter are not so different. An artwork can sing as a score does depict. When composer Jack Chown walked into painter Jason Butler’s studio for the first time, the realisation of their symmetry as artists was swift to surface. Jack hears the music he loves in Jason’s paintings and when Jason paints, he often does so to that same music. In a unique and one off collaboration, Jack has composed a piece of music to accompany the vivid and shimmering fields of Jason’s fresh and abstract work. Using his personal experience of graphical synaesthesia, Jack shifts and translates the blushing hues and glowing tints of Jason’s palette into a fervent swelling piece that blooms as the canvases vibrate in the space. The work will be showcased in an exclusive evening installation of live performance and film that explores: what is the Sound of Colour?
Dreams in Color by Andrew Schwartz
“Dreams in Color” explores the process and motivation of a master at work, featuring the 2019 Pollock Krasner Foundation “Prize for Creativity” winner Todd Williamson, one of only two American painters featured at the 2019 Venice Biennale in Italy.
A Touching Sight by Alberto Amoretti
A Touching Sight is a 15-minute documentary that shows the different purposes of the extra-ordinary exhibition Josef and Anni Albers: VIBE – Voyage inside a blind experience.
First and foremost the development of a new inclusive model for a temporary exhibition that can be equally enjoyed by both sighted and visually impaired people.
A new way to enjoy art through the senses that enhances its fruition is the other aim of the exhibition. “Feeling the experience” as Gregorio Battistoni the project creator of the VIBE exhibition affirms. Tactility is particularly emphasized because the Albers Foundation exceptionally for this exhibition provides works of art that can be touched by visitors.
The third keyword is synesthesia: the tactile approach allows the audience to “see” a visual image through other senses and vice-versa, expanding and challenging the notion of art fruition and aesthetic experience.
This documentary is an opportunity to reflect on how the experience of blind people can enhance the experience of sighted visitors.
Paper worlds by Sofya Leonidova
Short Documentary – Student Film
Portrait of Kazakh-Russian painter Latif Kazbekov. We’ll meet him in the studio – the place where outer world and inner world are mixed together. Where paintings as a result are less important than process itself. Paper reliefs, thoughtful paintings, artisanal paper-making and endless questions. An attempt to look into origins of art and answer the questing: where do paper worlds come from?
Declarations by Adam E. Stone
Inspired by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), and the art and writing of feminist painter Saribenne Evesong (1931-2009), Declarations uses art, and the art of movement, to examine empathy as a facilitator of sustainable love, peace, and justice.

Cornered by Raquel Salvatella de Prada
